Reacting to the news of further tax avoidance schemes used by celebrities and other high-earners, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"Ordinary taxpayers are understandably angry at those seemingly not paying their fair share, be they celebrities or anyone else. But it’ll keep happening until politicians act to make the tax system simpler and fairer. The case for serious tax reform is now stronger than ever - lower rates, simpler rules, no exceptions."
